Mobile broadband coverage in Stornoway

Hey there.

Both O2 and voda overseas call centres say that there's no mobile broadband coverage in Stornoway.

(I need mobile broadband reception, not internet cafe or wifi)

I find that hard to believe - can anyone help me out please?

Thanks, John

Hi yabayaba

Not sure if its much help but my i-phone on vodafone works well at all points on Harris / Lewis where I can get a vodafone signal. On the run i do my e-mail and keep up to date with the footie and on the west coast of harris its ok. Not sure if you mean dongle linked 3g coverage??

Thanks for that cale. Yeah, I did mean a dongle for my laptop.

I have a mobile on O2 and it works in most places but I need internet access and can't be restricted by library or internet cafe opening times.

I don't even have a phone line in the cottage - internet access isn't usually an issue when I visit but this year it is.

Cheers, John

Just check the websites of the companies, they should have coverage maps for the entire country

If only it was that easy - that's why I posted here.

Both O2 and vodafone maps and call centres say there's no cover . . like I said in the first post.

I've got it sorted now after talking to a local - apparently there's limited cover from O2

Yes, I know they both accept the postcodes but when I checked and the phoned the call centres I was told there was no coverage.

I now have it sorted.

Thank you
